Recently, the price of gas has begun to drop. Not drastically, but just enough to slightly take the pressure off when filling up at the pump. Now, many people in the community and the mainstream media are applauding the price of gas coming down, and applauding the president for bringing "hope and change" to our nation.
Here is a handful of examples of Obama's hope and change.
When he took office, gas was $1.90 per gallon. Under his watch, it rose more than $2 per gallon to more than $5 per gallon in some states. He turned down the gas pipeline from Canada, which would have lowered energy prices and created jobs.
A total of 572,000 jobs have been lost since he took office, and in April, 340,000 people dropped out of the labor force, apparently losing hope of finding a job.
The median household income in the United States is down $4,300 per year, and since Obama took office, food stamp spending is up 100 percent. In 2008, $39 billion was spent for food assistance, and that number grew to $82 billion in 2012. Glaringly, 48 percent of the people in the United States receive some kind of entitlement.
Now that Obamacare has been upheld, our nation is going to experience the effects of the biggest tax increase in the country's history. Those tax increases, when combined with the $1.311 trillion dollars per year his administration has added to the national debt, is an overwhelming financial burden that cannot be sustained on the backs of American taxpayers.
Abortion will be paid for under Obamacare with tax dollars, regardless of the moral opinions of the taxpayer.
I love this country and my family dearly, especially my grandkids, and I look forward to the dreams they pursue in the future. However, if Obama gets re-elected this November, four more years of this administration might destroy their futures.
